Support New 5-Year Plan for Cdn. Agricultural Policy

On July 20th, 2022, governments are meeting to negotiate the next Agricultural Policy Framework (APF): a five-year funding agreement that will govern agriculture spending across Canada until 2028.

This is our sector’s most significant policy framework; it is imperative to make action on climate change central to this new framework.

We have a plan to scale-up the adoption of climate-friendly practices that reduce GHG emissions, increase carbon sequestration, and strengthen resilience on farms across Canada. I am writing to you today to ask if you can help us get these recommendations maximum visibility among policy-makers, farmers and the public.

In late 2021, Farmers for Climate Solutions assembled a farmer-led task force of experts to identify the most cost-effective ways to reduce emissions rapidly. If adopted by the Canadian government, their program recommendations will chart the course for a climate-resilient agricultural sector that prioritizes farmer livelihoods and food security for all Canadians.
Meet the experts
See their recommendations
The APF is co-negotiated between provincial, territorial and federal governments. This means that all levels of our government need to work together towards a common strategy. We need to call for partnerships across our governments!

Can you help us spread the word? Here are some ways you can take action:

1. Share these recommendations on social media 2. Send an email to your provincial Minister of Agriculture letting them know you want to see these recommendations in the next APF
Thank you for continuing to be a strong advocate for climate action in agriculture.
